Ne-Yo is back! And this time it’s with the title track of his new album ‘Good Man.’
Though renown for his own production gravitas, the R&B aficionado borrows D’Angelo‘s ‘How Does It Feel’ as the foundation for the single.
Produced by DJ Camper, the track sees the soulful crooner serenade his lover with all the ways he wants to be the model person for her.
And he stresses that this is a thread that is sewn throughout his LP:
“This album focuses on the journey of what it is to be a good man: a good man to your spouse, a good brother to your brother, a good person to the world.
I am not proclaiming to be perfect. A Good Man makes mistakes, learns from those mistakes, therefore to not then repeat those mistakes. Being a A Good Man is a journey.”

The sample serves as an immediate grab and will no doubt help Ne-Yo cater to R&B purists with its sprinkles of nostalgia.
Sonically, the song is familiar ground for the singer but with a mature twist and seems equipped to deliver decent results on the Urban and Urban A/C formats.
